So, until I can forget the jacket all together, this is my go-to option for the next couple of months. At least I will be warm and comfy until I can bust out the shorts and flip-slops.

Ken Onion realizes that most of us do not need to carry a 4" blade in our pocket for everyday use. Most people want something functional and strong, but our needs and those of a soldier abroad are by no means the same. The two renditions of the Ripple are a smooth lined, minimalist version of a tactical knife with style. Coming in with blade lengths of 3.125" and 2.7" respectively, the Ripple and Ripple 2 are a very comfortable size.
Lightning fast one-handed opening with a flick of the "blade flipper" and the assistance of the IKBS ball bearing system machined into the handle. Incredibly smooth and rigid, literally zero blade wiggle in between the handle scales. CRKT makes knives in nearly every style, now they have blended two of my favorites into one great every day carry knife.
